Thanks for the help.
This has nothing to do with a navigation DVD, nor would it work with any older BMW that uses navigation systems with DVDs anyhow since it requires the latest incarnation of iDrive (CIC).

You order the "software" from a website and they email you an .iso which you then rip to a blank CD. You place the CD into the DVD drive that's in your center console of your car and within less than a minute or so, your car is now "hacked".

If at any time you want to revert this "hack", simply follow the procedure again and it reverses it.

You can "hack" and "revert" as many times as you want.
